BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan – As a convoy of more than 20 vehicles snaked its way through a creek bed in Tag Ab Valley, Nov. 10, 2007, small-arms and rocket propelled grenade fire interrupted the patrol’s five-day mission of searching for high value targets in Kapisa province.

Spc. Nicholas Colgin, a medic with Bravo Company, Division Special Troops Battalion, 82nd Airborne Division, heard the call for “medic” and responded by running through sporadic enemy fire to a wounded French soldier ultimately saving Sabastian’s life, according to hospital officials.
